from Upper Room Books Dec 3, 2007
This book will help you understand and deepen your experience of God. You'll be able to ask the questions of issues and faith in a safe place. You'll discover (or rediscover) a way of grace, joy, and peace--indeed, the way of Christ himself. Ideal for the novice and veteran alike, this book defines and explains the most basic concepts and language of the Christian spiritual life: prayer, the Bible's message for our lives today, spiritual gifts, listening, journaling, and much more. It's the ultimate six-week orientation to spirituality and the essential elements of faith. Stories, scripture, and exercises in each chapter will help connect your beliefs with daily experiences. Through independent and group study, you'll establish a rhythm of daily time with God, weekly time in Christian community, and a lifelong attentiveness to possibilities for serving the world. "To become a spiritual adventurer means learning to listen for the voice of God," writes the author. "This listening involves a certain level of risk and vulnerability that does not come easily. ...[But] we cannot fully rest until we find our way back to the place of our soul's origin, back to the love that gave us life."
